The AXIOS System: A Detailed Case Report

William J. Salyers, Jr., M.D. & Michael S. Green, M.D.

A 55-year-old man presented with a history of pancreatitis complicated by pancreatic pseudocyst formation. With the pseudocyst increasing in size and his symptoms becoming worse, Dr. Salyers decided to perform EUS-guided cystogastrostomy with placement of an AXIOS Stent.  

Read Dr. Salyer’s detailed description of the procedure including additional images, post-procedure follow-up and final outcome.  

Pancreatic pseudocyst measuring 8.5 cm by 8.2 cm in maximal cross-sectional dimension.
